e-learning cost justification over other methods

Oct 31, 2011


Does anyone have or know of articles that talk about e-leaning being a better approach that more traditional training/learning methods?  I am putting together a justification to hire a full time Articulate/LMS person and our organization requires a $$ based cost analysis.  I can do the money part OK.  I am looking for expert opinions or examples were other companies were able to show measurable improvements using e-learning based training/learning.  So instead of my opinion of the savings....I want to refer to expert testimony or real life examples of measurable savings.

Any help with be appreciated.

Welcome Doug,

You might want to look at compliance rates for as well as effectiveness. My personal experience is that many stakeholders can be swayed with a fact-based arguement around penetration rate/compliance. For example...

"With the existing stand-up training, 72% of those that should attend the training actually attend; and there are limited opportunities for those that miss the event to make-up the missed training. With our online offerings, that number is 94%. The reasons for that increased compliance include ease-of-access for the learners, real-time reporting for management, and the opportunity to make-up the training for those that were on leave or remiss the first time around."

Hope this helps,
